Hey! I hope you are all having a good start of the season. Loving this warm weather so far.
First year having an in-ground garden. No longer living in the NJ pine barrens with that awful sandy "soil". Living right out of Philly these days and the soil is nice clay. Peppers seem to love it.
Seeds sowed mid March. Started seeing hooks in April, and they hit dirt the day before Mother's day.

It's also my first year expanding to other veggies. Lots of volunteers came up through the compost pile, so anything that I could identify got planted too. So far, I've scavenged a potato, 2 kinds of squash, 3 tomato plants, an onion and two scallions. I planted carrots, lettuce and radishes in some pots this week.
Time for the pictures.
Here's my compost pile. It was here when we moved into this place at the end of last summer. It's been great to spread just about anywhere. Flowers and veggies love it. It's crazy how much can go into the compost instead of being thrown away.
Here's a shot of the garden today before some rain. Spread a little compost and did some light weeding. The bind weed is non-stop. The grass went to seed before we moved in last year and that is seemingly neverending too. It's something I'm working on.
Second smaller garden that all the extras got shoved into. I figured I'd see what they do.
Some nice purples.
All the volunteers and a couple tomato plants my neighbor gave me went into some fabric pots from last year. I really liked these. If you haven't tried them I do recommend.
First tomato flower.
Overwintered c. pubescens that is doing well in the ground.
Have a chill day yall.
